A 590-foot (180-meter) vessel exceeded Roman Abramovich’s yacht Eclipse, which previously held the title of world’s largest yacht, measures 538 feet long.
Luxury private ship is also among the fastest and can pull 30 knots (34.5mph). The person who commissioned the massive construction remains unknown, but industry sources say the owner is likely the royal family of the United Arab Emirates, who supposedly paid a whopping $627.4 million for it.
According to Lürssen, the engineer’s brief was “to build a large luxury yacht with an innovative and timeless design that would be able to travel at high speed in warm and shallow waters, whilst providing luxurious and sophisticated accommodation to its guests”.
There are no immediate descriptions available of the interior, though we know it’s in the hands of French interior designer Christophe Leoni, who’s using a “turn of the century Empire style.” Some of the additional details include a main salon with a length of 29 m and a beam of 18m with an open plan and no pillars.
Peter Lürssen of Lürssen Yachts described the yacht as “a milestone in not only our history but yachting history as well”.

GEMBALLA has attracted the attention with their Air package for the new Porsche 911 Carrera S cabrio (Series 991). Visual makeover is the GEMBALLA GT aerodynamic package, which starts with a new, front bumper/spoiler section with three large cooling air intakes, and large lip spoilers to provide more stabilising downforce at speed. The organic lines of the front spoiler extend into the deep side skirts that visually connect the new front to its rear counterpart. The new rear bumper/valance features a recessed panel whose strong top and bottom horizontal lines visually accentuate the width of the car.
A diffuser sits between the distinctive triple outlet pipes of the GEMBALLA stainless steel exhaust system, which takes its design cue from the exhaust of the legendary GEMBALLA Avalanche of the 1980s. The 21st Century GEMBALLA features squared off rather than rounded tips. The deeper voice of this sports exhaust with its valve-operated sound control feature gives the car the soundtrack to match its looks. In line with the GEMBALLA philosophy of low weight and optimum quality, all these aerodynamic components are made in Germany from top grade carbon-fibre.
As no bodywork modifications are required, the car can easily be returned to standard when the time comes to sell. The GEMBALLA GT aerodynamic-kit is on sale now starting at $26,000 incl. VAT (in Germany) including paintwork and installation. Even with the standard motor, the GEMBALLA Cabriolet is faster from point to point thanks to its uprated sports suspension and brakes. The 30mm shorter springs are calibrated to work with the factory PASM (Porsche electronic damping control system), while the brake system, developed for GEMBALLA by Brembo, is highly resistant to fade and allows you to set later braking points.
The new GForged-one alloy wheels with their choice of “black magic” or “gunmetal” finishes, come in an eye-catching 21-inch diameter. Thanks to modern forged, lightweight construction, they weigh less than the factory 20-inch wheels, benefiting ride and handling. The cost for a set starts at $13,000 incl. VAT (in Germany) depending on the type of tyres fitted. GEMBALLA was one of the pioneers of bespoke interior trim in the German tuning industry. That tradition continues today, offering customers complete freedom of material and colour choice.
